In brief: Location

If you think of your lungs as an upside down tree, the pneumonia is an infection of the leaves & twigs that attach them to the limbs.
A bronchitis is an infection in the larger & smaller limbs before you get to the leaves. There is a bit of overlap in locations but that is how the words are used.
